Mapping TCP/IP ports
sniperweb Jul-11-01 08:25 PM
Ok, here goes.
I have two computers, one connected to the net, the one I have is connected to computer 1 ( the one connected to the net ). I have a program that says I have to map a TCP/IP port on PC 1 then enter the port into the program so that it can work. To make a long story short, How do I map TCP/IP ports, or any "ports" for that matter?
PS. PC 1 is a gateway.
PPS. What the heck is a port anyways

What program are you using to share the Internet connection?

Q. What are TCP Ports?
A. Data transmitted over a network using the Transport Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), such as the Internet, includes address information that identifies the computer (32-bit IP address) and a port. Ports number (16-bit number) the ends of logical connections used for long-term data transfers between applications. For example port 80 is the standard File Transfer Protocol (FTP) port used by HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP) to send and retrieve web pages. Service contact ports or "well-known ports" are used to provide services to unknown callers. Port numbers are divided into three categories and ranges:

Well Known Ports are those from 0 through 1023

Registered Ports are those from 1024 through 49151

Dynamic and/or Private Ports are those from 49152 through 65535

The list of TCP and User Datagram Protocol (UDP) ports (http://www.iana.org/assignments/port-numbers) is maintained by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA).
